Lake Garda
Departing by Air
Duration 8 Days
Available Until October 2018

Discover the many sides of Lake Garda, on a holiday to Italy.

Italian holidays can promise romance, glamour and scene-stealing, film-set prettiness; and Lake Garda has them all.

Add to that a Mediterranean-like climate, a location surrounded by alpine mountains, plus fine foods and wines, and you’ll soon realise that Italy’s largest lake is one of those places in the world you just have to visit… probably more than once.

It’s clear blue waters are fringed by colourful flora and backed by the wooded slopes of craggy mountains, and it’s this jaw-dropping natural beauty that has been drawing visitors (including the rich and famous) to its sun-kissed shores for over 100 years.

See what else awaits you on this holiday in Italy.
